Lights, Camera, Cheers

Butch and Sundance. Riggs and Murtaugh. Buzz and Woody. Jake and Elwood, Garth and Wayne (schwing). Hollywood’s seen some pretty epic teamwork over the years, but none are more innovative than Grolsch’s latest partnership with the film business.

Music to your beers

Music to your beers 1

Is it a boombox? Is it a crate of beers? Happily, it’s both. This is the latest packaging from Beck’s, designed to hold a six-pack of beers and look uber cool at the same time. (Bottoms up, Damo.)

When is a box not a box? When it’s a table, of course. To help Nikka Whisky stand out on European shelves, international distributor La Maison du Whisky has given it some snazzy new packaging that can be configured into a variety of shapes.

Bite your lip

First we had restaurants where the food was served in the pitch dark (Dans Le Noir? London). Now the latest restaurant to jump on the sensory deprivation bandwagon is Eat in Brooklyn’s oh-so-chic Greenpoint neighbourhood. (Silent nod to Em!)

Everything must go

Like the bar stool you’re sat on? It’s yours. How about that stuffed rooster? Or the grand piano? Or the barman’s jeans? Pawn & Co is a new bar on Melbourne’s Chapel Street, where everything – and we mean everything – is for sale. (Nice one, Lyndal.)

McMinimal

Greasy brown paper bags. Plastic trays with flimsy paper liners. Cardboard cups with striped straws. McDonald’s has never had the most glamorous packaging – until now.

Our/Vodka

Meet Our/Vodka: a hand-crafted, locally-sourced, niche vodka with all the markings of a start-up. Except it’s entirely funded by a luxury global brand.

Created by Pernod Ricard, the new spirit is produced by local experts in a specially built distillery in the Kreuzberg district in Berlin, and only sold in local bars. To keep up credibility, it’s not even available through Pernod Ricard’s traditional channels.

Smart cookies

Is it art? Is it a collection of tennis balls? Nope, it’s new gourmet biscuit brand Beurre & Sel.

Created by food critic, writer and chef Dorie Greenspan and her son Josh, Beurre & Sel takes its name from their signature sweet and savoury mix of butter and salt.

New York with sprinkles on top

If New York were an ice cream, would it be chocolate or coffee? And would it be drizzled with caramel, mixed with marshmallow or packed with chunks of waffle?

Ben & Jerry’s is letting fans craft a flavour of ice cream to represent D.C., SF, NYC, Portland, and Seattle. (Thanks for the scoop, Jamie.) There are all sorts of ingredient options to vote for. And as everything is supplied by local partners, they really will be ice creams churned by the people, for the people.
